The hosts held firm to the position 98-3 (20 overs) 116-8 and thereafter but collapsed face down on the figure of 134 in 34.3 overs.

” We will make the game more balanced in the match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, ” said manager Melayu Malaysia Azmi A. Majid.

South Africa wants to repeat the ferocity in a meeting with Sri Lanka tomorrow and warned that they will win more games this year.
